This is a really good book. Other books have shown you other things, like customizing Max to work for you, but this was more directed at modeling.
This book showed me how to get the most out of instance meshes. They can save you TONS of time. It's really funny, but not ALL of the book is really IN the book and the REST of the book is broke down to PDFs on the DVD. One of the "bonus tutorials" is sculpting that dude on the cover, giving him a "skeleton" to animate him and make him walk around and do camera shots and stuff.
Buy it if you're at all serious about what you do with Max.
